  1. I am happy to hear you are doing so well. My health seems to be getting worse and I asked my Dr. “is there a light at the end of the tunnel or a time when I would start to feel better?” His response was less hopeful than yours. Don’t get me wrong, I still have some good days, they are just fewer lately. If all goes well with insurance, I will start aquatic physical therapy. I am hopeful it will help with some of the pain and give me strength. It is good to hear some positive words that give me hope. Thank You

  3. Hi,

    I stumbled upon your blog as I was looking up Gastroparesis + gluten and dairy free. I have had Gastroparesis since I was 14 but I would say it has become the most severe in the past four years. I was recently told I needed to stay away from gluten and dairy, which seemed not to much of a challenge except for the fact that with Gastroparesis we cannot have many fruits and veggies.

    So I was wondering what you would say you normally stick to with eating and what a normal meal looks like for you? I am feeling frustrated and like I cannot eat anything so finding your blog was an encouragement that there are other people out there. Thanks!

    • Hi Karesse,
      There are definitely things that you can find to eat. The main thing is to focus on what you CAN have rather than what you can’t. (Easier said than done, FOR SURE!) However, if you can master this mindset it makes a world of difference.
      I eat a lot of chicken, potatoes, rice, greek yogurt, and berries.
      For me, I found that I can’t have cow’s milk but do okay with other dairy (cheese is fine). I also found that I have to limit my bread and pasta intake or I get extremely bloated. I can still have it once in awhile in small quantities. However, I can have other gluten items. Graham crackers are fine.

      The main thing I did (I’m not a medical professional) was to eliminate several different things and then slowly add one or two things back. If those couple of items went okay, I would then add in another item. If they went bad, I would at them to the list and then start over.

      I hope this helps!


  4. Hiya millie. I hope you get this! Could you please email me if possible. It would be nice to have you as some kind of friend /support. You feel like nobody understands when you have this horrific condition. So the people that do understand it’s nice to communicate with. Thanks. Hope to hear from you
